Soon movie buffs are going to be treated with a multi-starrer film which is directed by a debut director Kaashvie Nair and produced by Bhushan Kumar, Nikkhil Advani and John Abraham. Well, the film is still untitled but it is on the lines of a cross-border love story featuring John, Aditi Rao Hydari, Rakul Preet Singh and Arjun Kapoor. It’s a love story spanning three generations, starting in 1947 and continuing till 2020. According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, the film's shooting has begun and they will be shooting in Mumbai's Film City. The 10-day shoot took off on schedule on Monday. The report further mentioned that Neena Gupta and Kanwaljit Singh will also be a part of the film. Reportedly, Aditi is going to play the younger version of Neena.
Talking about the same, John was quoted saying, “When I heard the script, I instantly knew that this would be a special part, and when Kaashvie suggested I play it, it was difficult to refuse.” Nikkhil shed some light on the plot and John and Aditi's character where he said, “There is a parallel between Arjun and Rakul’s characters in the present day and the forced break-up between John and Aditi’s characters in 1947 following the Partition. He plays a sardar for the first time.” As John is co-producing the film, he said that he is very excited to be back at work after a forced break due to the pandemic spread. He also mentioned that the team is taking all the precautions and extreme care on the sets and as a producer, he thinks it is important for him to take care of his cast and crew.
Aditi also gave us an idea about her character and what made her choose the film in a jiffy. “John and I play a couple in 1946 –47 whose love story remains unfinished and unrequited till Arjun’s character feels the need to bring it to closure. Films like these are rarely made today, so I was quick to come on board.”
